Malawi`s political arena continues to make headlines ahead of the 2019 tripartite elections with the latest protagonist being Salim Bagus.
Bagus has thrown in the towel at the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) where he was serving as the deputy secretary general. He has made the announcement today.
In a brief notice dated 1st November, Bagus has relayed the information to media houses for dissemination to the masses.
“With effect from today, I, Salim Bagus, have resigned from the Malawi Congress Party,” reads part of the communique.
This means that Bagus will not be vying for a parliamentary seat in Chikwawa Central Constituency on an MCP ticket,
When asked by the media as to why he has left the party, he cited personal reasons.
“I have resigned on personal grounds, from today I am just Salim Bagus,” He said
However some quarters suspect he is joining another camp, something which he has vehemently denied in his justification for his resignation.
